Fodor's Review

Visible from miles away, the 98-foot-high steel cross at the top of Mont-Royal has been a city landmark since it was erected in 1924, largely with money raised through the efforts of 85,000 high-school students. In 1993 the 249 bulbs used to light the cross were replaced with a fiber-optic system.
